La Casa del Acebuche is a cozy holiday home located in the southern part of Los Alcornocales Nature Reserve, in the municipality of Tarifa. The house, tastefully renovated in 2015 in a modern style accommodates a couple. Guests have access to their own private terrace as well as to a shared swimming pool. La Casa del Acebuche is a great destination to relax and enjoy nature, while at the same time a convenient base from where to enjoy the town of Tarifa and its beaches.
La casa del Acebuche offers a privileged location in an unspoiled natural environment combining the traditional construction style typical of the region with a modern and comfortable interior design.
The accommodation consists of a living room divided in two spaces, with sofa, armchairs and chimney on the one side, and kitchen and dining table on the other; bathroom and bedroom with double bed and a desk. If required, a folding bed can be arranged for a third person.
The bedroom has direct access to a private terrace with a table and chairs to rest outdoors in a quiet and secluded place. The guests have at their disposal a shared swimming pool and other common spaces of the 2000m2 parcel such as the patio at the entrance and fruit trees scattered around the space (custard apple, pear, fig trees, …). All over the parcel there are great views with the Strait of Gibraltar in the background and of splendid sunsets.
La Casa del Acebuche is surrounded by wooded meadow in a part of the Alcornocales Natural Reserve known to locals as “La Ahumada”, full of cork oaks, holm oaks and many other Mediterranean species, which is public land and thus open for our guests to explore freely.
We put at the disposal of our guests up to three bikes at no additional cost, subject to availability. Please let us know in advance the date in which you would like to use them.
During the winter season we provide firewood for the chimney.
The swimming pool is shared with the other two houses located in the estate and is open during the summer season.
Interaction with guests
La casa del Acebuche is located in a parcel of land that includes a second vacation house and a ceramic workshop, and on which we sometimes undertake the necessary gardening and maintenance works to keep the estate in good conditions.
In another part of the estate we are fostering a few cats, which you may encounter in the common facilities and the private terrace. The house is in a rural setting, therefore in the public land outside of the estate you may encounter livestock (in all certainty goats, but perhaps also the occasional cow, pig, donkey or horse).
Our holiday house is pet friendly.
Other things to note
Do you know where the name of the house comes from? Acebuche is a local name for a wild variety of olive tree (Olea europea var. sylvestris) indigenous of the Mediterranean region and often found in the woods around the vacation house is located.
The house is inside a parcel shared with other two apartments. It is necessary to be respectful with other in order to guarantee a pleasant stay for everybody.

We are a local family who has owned the property for over twenty year. In 2014 we decided to open it to guests with the intention of offering high-standard accommodation to nature lovers a short ride away from Tarifa and its beaches. Since then we have been gradually undertaking a full renovation of the space. We have now completed the redesign and modernisation of two independent houses (El Alcornoque and El Acebuche) within the 2000 sqm parcel. I am currently working abroad, so it is my brother Pablo, his girlfriend Gosia and my mother Mariluz who, based out of Tarifa, are taking care of the maintenance of the property and making sure that guests feel like at home during their holidays in our houses. Since we started back in 2014 we are fortunate to have hosted wonderful people from all walks of life and from all over Europe and beyond. We’d love to host you too!
